Question about Cooper Wiring Devices Electrical Supplies
Remove the two sensors. If they are connected to your lighting on the same circuit you may need to replace then with '3-Way Switches'.

Correct, assuming red and black are connected to the breakers in the breaker panel, and white is connected to the neutral/ground buss bar in the breaker panel.

Testimonial: "I guess they didn't bother to check the instructions. I Just went ahead and wired it the way I thought it should be wired and everything worked fine"
If the test button pops the circuit when you press it, then it should be working properly, If it doesn't then it's not working.

SOURCE: The task was to replace
Generally, 3 wires indicate a "3way" switch where you have 2 switches at opposite entrances to a room. Both the Red and Black Can be hot, depending on the other switches position. But, a red wire would normally only be found at the switch box not the light.
What I'd suggest, is that you get a multimeter, and use it to determine the hot wire and the ground/neutral. Once you know which wire is hot, connect the hot to the black lead, and ground/neutral to the white lead of the light. That is the only SAFE manner I can see to resolve this.

SOURCE: i just bought a switch
The key seems to be that you changed wiring in the ceiling box.
I suggest you make a drawing of the wires before and after. Track the route that the Hot wire takes.
The key question is this: Does Hot wire from breaker box arrive in the ceiling box first? Or does it arrive in wall box first?
I think Hot from breaker arrives in wall box first. And from there Hot wire goes to ceiling box ... and from ceiling box the hot wire goes to other plugs in room. If this is true, you will be one wire short for installing fan control switch.
I always make a drawing of existing wires before starting, so I can put it back the way it was. It sounds like you got a good handle on which wire goes where.
We used to solve the one-wire-short problem by making a simple project bigger. Figure out which direction ceiling joist run. See if you can slide fish line from fan ceiling box over to wall. If that works. Over at the wall, chop small hole in ceiling so you can feed wire up to fish line. Pull wire over to ceiling box. Next, staple other end of wire along ceiling over to location above wall box. Chop another small hole so you can feed wire down to wall box. And then install beautiful crown molding to hide the mess, and paint the room so you need new furniture.

The sell sheet for this product shows this is a NEMA-14 Twist lock plug rated for 120V - 240V wiring.
To wire the plug:
G is for ground W is for Neutral
The hot wires connect to X and Y
This is simple for 240V ... your red and black wires connect to X and Y, the ground to G, and the white neutral to W
For 120V circuit, the G ground and W white neutral remain the same. I think the black hot wire is X.
A simple tester in the receptacle can confirm this before plugging in the twist-lock
